NEDERLAND, Colo., Jan. 2 (UPI) -- The organizer of the Frozen Dead Guy Days winter festival in Nederland, Colo., said she purchased the event to keep it in town.

Amanda MacDonald, who has organized the event for the past four years, said she bought Frozen Dead Guy Days from the Nederland Area Chamber of Commerce during the summer.

MacDonald said she wanted Nederland to keep the event, which celebrates the 1994 discovery of Grandpa Bredo Morstoel's cryogenically frozen corpse, The Boulder (Colo.) Daily Camera reported Monday.

"The chamber really wanted to keep it local, and they did make it affordable for me [to buy the event], I think, with this kind of understanding: that rather than some promotion company from Denver [taking it over], I wouldn't really change it drastically," MacDonald said. "Honestly, I just wanted to see it stay in town. It's really Nederland's event."

MacDonald said the March 2-4 festival will include a hearse parade, a coffin race, a salmon-toss, frozen turkey bowling a frozen T-shirt contest, polar plunges and live music. More information is available at the event's Web site, frozendeadguydays.org.
